Bridge is a metal vase collection designed for the Belgian brand Xlboom.
The shape borns by cutting out a folded tube. An example of how minimalism and sottaction can create function and decoration at the same time.
Bridge was conceived in a period when studio research was going on a certain direction: creating function removing material. The design started from the analisys of the metal tube to create something really simple to make. The result came from a single tube bending in order to make an archetypal shape, like an arc. Then the top part got removed to create function and give character.
It is available in 3 different sizes, matched with glass tumblers to ensure waterproofing from earth and water.
